I was browsing the aisle at Safeway that had soups & broths and came across different flavored broths from O Organics®. The Beef flavored Pho broth & the Thai Style Curry Chicken broth caught my eye. They were rather inexpensive so I decided to make dinner with it!
It’s been a wild few months and I was cooking up a storm in the beginning of our stay-at-home order but then resorted to take-out for a bit to support our local restaurants. I realized that I needed a balance of home-cooking and eating out because eating out was starting to get pricey. But cooking sometimes just took too much time! So I started to think about creating easy and quick meals at home which were also budget-friendly and then ended up on making these noodle soups.
I love noodle soup dishes so I decided to make a simple Beef Pho & Thai curry noodles. I purchased some O Organics Top Sirloin Steak, rice noodles, limes, micro cilantro, cilantro, onions, jalapenos and O Organics Grade A Large Brown Eggs along with the O Organics Thai Style Curry Chicken Broth and Beef Flavored Pho Broth. I got all the products at my local Safeway which was super convenient! I didn’t realize that Safeway had such a good variety of Asian products to choose from.
I decided to make two different noodle soups because I like having options while I’m eating. I would normally order multiple items at a restaurant to share so why should it be any different at home?
For the Beef pho, I cooked the noodles and heated up the pho broth separately. I sliced the top sirloin beef into thin slices & placed it on top of the noodles. I made sure to pour the hot broth onto the meat slices so it cooked the beef. The beef cooks to a perfect medium rare or rare, which is how I liked to eat my beef. I garnished the soup with some lime slices, micro cilantro, onions, and jalapenos. The broth was tasty! It was so convenient that I might make it again next week adding different kinds of beef.
For the Thai Style Curry noodles, I used the same ingredients for the pho but only changed up the broth flavor. This made it very convenient! I cooked the noodles and poured the hot broth over the noodles just as I did for the pho. For an extra special touch, I garnished this noodle soup with a 6-minute egg. I liked the addition of a soft-boiled egg because, who doesn’t love some extra protein in their noodle soups?
These noodle soups were really easy to make and they actually turned out great. The broths were very flavorful and provided a good base for the noodle soups. I was surprised at the high quality of the broths and at the fact that they were also USDA-certified organic. The prices were budget-friendly as well without compromising quality & taste.
O Organics offers high-quality, USDA-certified organic products in every aisle of the store at a value; there are more than 1,500 products down every aisle of the store. I shopped at Safeway in my local area, but you can also Shop O Organics® products exclusively at the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Randalls, Shaw’s Supermarket, Star Market, & Tom Thumb.
Safeway also offers Grocery Delivery and Drive Up & Go™ for convenient ways to shop! I have yet to try their service but it sounds very convenient & safe for anyone who is worried about shopping during these times.
Hope you like these quick and easy weekday dinner ideas. Please leave me a comment with your thoughts on them if you happen to make them!
